Statement from the Artist: A.Y. Bain

I am primarily interested in using the domestic, utilitarian vessel as a vehicle for personal expression.  The basic reason for this is  quite simply that if a reconstituted piece of mountain that I create does not have any long term-artistic merit, at least it has a  potential human utilitarian value for the next 10,000  years if we  can hold off the apocalypse that long.
